, michael goldstein, and he was an advocate for hiv prevention for finding a cure for hiv. and you can think of so many michael goldsteins. and dr. colfax and other people mentioned that. their memory lives on. and i think that we owe it to them to continue to recommit ourselves, rededicate ourselves to making sure that we prevent the spread of this disease, and that we do find a cure for this disease. and i just think about, you know, the possibilities with this building. this could well be the place where we do find a cure for aids. and if it's going to happen anywhere, why wouldn't it happen in san francisco? we have always led the way on so many different things. you know, the city of harvey milk is a city that has always recognized the dignity and humanity of every person and it's in line with that spirit that we are here today. and i do want to thank our mayor because as supervisor weaner noted, when the $7 million of funding was cut, even though we were lucky that for so many years leader pelosi protected that, the mayor did not blink. the mayor wasn't even a question. and that's the

speaker. >> michael helquist. >> good afternoon, i am michael helquist, i live at golden gate and central. one block east of masonic. i lived in this location in a home i own for the last 15 years. i use muni. i walk and sometimes drive and bike. i try to avoid traveling on masonic by any means. because i know it's not safe. i helped organize two community vigils for people hit and killed by motorists driving dangerously on masonic. neither the pedestrian nor the bicyclist were crossing or riding against the law or against the light or doing any unlawful. i want to thank you for considering the change on this corridor. there are two additional points. i was involved in the plan and development for the last two years. first and foremost the strongest feeling is that this is about safety for all road user. it was never just a bike plan. this is what neighbors and community organizations have stressed for several years now. i am a member of the north of panhandle association, and i can't remember how many articles there were published. not only published in our newsletter but that gets hand

actually does all of the work? and we are pleased today to have michael terio and the puc have worked together for so long on all of these things it is a pleasure to have you here, he is the secretary treasurer of the labor trade council. [ applause ] >> this has been a wonderful program. it has brought in project after project, after project on time, under budget. it is a complex system and yet you don't hear any complaints about service interruptions out there. maybe you have streets torn up but not about service interruptions because we have managed to bring in project after project on time and under budget. it is a great partnership between the labor unions and the city. i want to call out the labor folks, charlie, would you raise your hand? >> tony, with the sheet metal worker, and david. with the laborers. and that partnership has been formalized in an agreement that has functioned beautifully, attention all the way back to washington, d.c.. and if you want to talk about stimulus in washington, we like to talk about stimulus more than 1.7 hours of work have gone to residents of
hours of their personal time helping us with the planning of the city. michael, thank you for returning and stepping forward for the planning commission. richard, thank you very much for stepping up as well. some say the most voluble land we have -- valuable land we have for people to live and enjoy is the waterfront. i want to thank our newest commissioner to the port commission, william adams. thank you, william, for stepping up. [applause] we have a very important task in front of us for this november. we have a very important bond i think most people in the city know will be invaluable to us for our kids and families. that is the open spaces part bond proposition b for this year. we also have a cherished commission and department that is charged with maintaining all of the open space in the city from the parklets to the vast golden gate park, to the shared responsibilities we have with ocean beach and open spaces throughout the city. i want to thank phil for being here today. we have our returning commission. you have done a wonderful job so well. in my decision, it was appropriate
wants michael vic in control of the animal control department. at the same time, if michael vic -- i'm sorry, at the same time if that person isn't fairly disclosing all of their income on income taxes, that may not have an official dimension. that may be purely private misconduct because there is no apparent overlap between the misconduct and the duties. chairperson hur explained i think quite eloquently his concern that the relationship test needs to be a bright line test. and the only way to do that, in his view, is to exclude this motion of subject matter relationship. i'm not sure that i agree, and the mayor certainly does not agree, with commissioner hur's decision to emphasize the need for a bright line rule over the voters intent that i think is more fairly inferred to place broad and binding ethical duties on its elected officials. the clarity simply for the sake of clarity, predictability simply for the sake of predictability is not a reason to ignore or to narrowly constrict ethical duties of officers. and it's also not the case that there has been some sort of broad misus
over the years to help pass clean power sf, and nancy miller and janson fried and the staff and michael campbell, and barbara hale and ed harrington and all last week 7k7kbqwas gr timing for the clean power and he timed his departure for that and i was happy to see it join together, and just to see that clean power sf would be just another one of the major achievements that ed harrington had over the course of his many -- several decades here in san francisco was very significant. that but also want to make sure you get the recognition that you greatly deserve for shepherding this through the last couple of years and i think it's really remarkable that we got the eight to three vote to get that level, that threshold for it to pass and i want to thank you for that effort because i really felt -- really inspired with the vote last week. i was really emotional about it and it was a landmark decision we made as a board. for some reason it seemed like a whisper but it's not. it's going to be dramatic change for the city and something to be proud of. it will need all of our work to be su
general manager of the san francisco public utilities commission and michael campbell and director for the san francisco public utilities commission. >> well, thank you very much and we have two resolutions of accommodation to two very important individuals and ed harrington being the first one and so much has been said about ed harrington that i don't know if we need to add to all the numerous things that have rightly said about him. i doubt that ed harrington is watching the lafco meeting. i am sure one of the benefits that he was looking forward to when he retired he no longer had to come to these meetings accident but in the event he is watching. >> >> we want to thank ed harrington for his work and we have a resolution before the commission honoring him. the second item and just as important is to honor mike campbell who has taken time i think he might be technically on vacation or personal time, so i apologize. it is not our intent to honor you by forcing you to take personal time to actually come to a lafco meeting, but mike campbell resolution is one that i think really
. michael was focused on delivery reforms and boxer, innovative financing and those are the key points that you will see in the bill itself. president obama signed it into law in july. and back in june, i don't think that anybody was expecting that we would actually see this bill come to fruition. but within a couple of weeks following the bill was on the president's desk for signature. the primary issue to point out with map 21, is that it is a two-year bill and it does not fundamentally change federal transportation policy. you can see from the picture on the slide in
